We are sad to see Dad go today. We had a really nice visit but they always seem too short. However, we are over the half-way hump! There are days it seems like it is flying by, but days like we have had lately (bug bites, broken kitchen sink, broken furnace, confusion (still!) at work) that it seems like it is going very slowly. Regardless, the Spanish is coming along very nicely. Both boys, including Tj, are trying to speak more. Their comprehension is quite amazing. Dave has a better take of their Spanish since I am with them every day and he reminds me that although the days can be taxing, this gift of language to the boys is incredible. I need to write that on my mirror some days. . . Here is a photo from the University. We have had amazing weather for the South of Chile. The color of the leaves is something we have enjoyed.
